Turlock, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2016 -- Mary Combs’s new book, From Religion to Relationship, ($13.99, paperback, 9781498475617; $6.99, e-book, 9781498475624) is the author’s personal journey from following a “religion” for decades, before she finally realized there is more to a religion than what she was experiencing. She proves by example that there is a personal, fulfilling, and trusting relationship waiting to flourish with God, but it requires a personal effort from each and every believer. Mary Combs motivates readers toward spiritual renewal and change. Her personal testimony will help those who may be awakening that they are involved in a religious system that is no different than what the Pharisees were in Jesus’ day. She believes that religious systems have become so complicated and have bound the simplicity of the gospel of Jesus Christ with their manmade rules, dogmas, doctrines and manipulative and controlling maneuvers, as well as clever twisting of the scripture. Most churches today are hardly recognizable as the vision Jesus wanted for His church.
“I hope to give readers freedom and inspiration to examine their relationship with God, apart from merely doing religious activities,” states the author. “This is because an abundance of activity alone takes time and energy away from a personal relationship with Christ, causing many to experience spiritual burnout.”
Mary Combs was born into a Christian home and raised in Los Angeles. She gave her heart to the Lord at six years old and shortly afterward she was called of God to be in ministry. She and her husband have been married over 50 years and been in pastoral ministry in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey, California and Arizona. They have also worked on staff at the Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn, New York. Currently, they travel and mentor other pastors and leaders in ministry and speak nationwide.
